ABSTRACT

The ecological study of literature is focused on questioning about the prerequisite of the modernized life of human beings. At this stage, freedom has become the most important premise in maintaining the discipline of ecological conditions of the existence of mankind. Freedom itself nowadays is being extremely distorted and suppressed. In discarding these ecological conditions, we can think of the anarchistic freedom as one of the valuable alternatives. The anarchistic ecology by means of the model of self-control and self-administration can be superbly fused into the protection of literary ambiguity. The relation between ecological study and the problem of freedom in the poem under the category of ecological study of Korean modern literature, in which this writer is currently conducting researches, is well depicted in this writing. Kim Su Young is such an ecological poet who put maximum efforts to artfully go between the reality of language and its abstraction. His poetic life could be marked as the norm of ecological study of Korean modern literature, as he had pushed ahead the complexity of life and the poetry to the end of his life. In that sense, the abstruseness of the poems written by Kim Su Young should rather be interpreted as an ambiguity itself. This ambiguity is the essence of life to the author. Moreover, it is the essence of ecological freedom as well. Kim Su Young will be remembered for recording a Copernican adventure in the history of Korean modern literature by not only experiencing the theory of chaos, the essence of those ecological conditions, but also reflecting those experiences to the poems he wrote. Without it, he would have been just a poet of ecological freedom of the day and never be the “Alive Kim Su Young” like the way he is called by the people nowadays.
